Social Entrepreneur, Shelly Bell is among the nation’s most sought after writers, community organizers and performers. Excelling as a truly dynamic force in the local (Washington, DC), national and now international media, her work as a performance poet has led to an arts partnership with the Northern VA Fine Arts Association, an interview with NerdWallet, a performance with the world renowned Washington Metro Philharmonic Association, and serving as an Arts Commissioner for the City of Alexandria, VA.

Her organization,  Women Writers Rock (WWR) exists to empower self-identified women to manifest radical messages into the world. WWR strives to create, support, and advocate for a community of women holding space to explore ideas and challenge societal norms.  WWR envisions a world of safe people, safe spaces, and safe dwellings.

The Teepee Project creates teepees to serve as safe dwelling spaces for self-identified women. Shelly was inspired to create Teepee BnB after hearing countless stories of the challenges traveling women artist face when searching for a place to stay while on the road. Teepees are a comfortable sleeping area in spaces that may be shared spaces such as living rooms or outdoors. The Teepees we create are collapsible and can be stored when not in use.

  1. It’s become more easy to send money today than in the past.
    Delivering money on the internet is a simple and
    quick process that often leads to money arriving quickly too.
    Lots of people desire to learn how to send money to the UK.

  2. Largely a fast response is expected by folks when they see the web, but
    it can not always run as mostly folks expect.
    Generally there are many factors that lead a sluggish internet connection including: a bad
    point in the consumer premises to the nearest central-office
    of the company, Central office problems, software that is
    pushchair, and largely as a result of Internet farm servers you
    browse to at another end of the the text. Thus just how do you speed up internet connection?
